"I deployed on 9/11. Within hours, all the ships in Norfolk were sortied out to sea. The fall and winter that was supposed to be spent cruising the Mediterranean saw the capturing of Kandahar and the beginning of the war in Afghanistan. Our friends that remained home had to watch in horror, hour after hour, day after day, the shots of the airplanes hitting the towers, scenes from the Pentagon, and the field in Pennsylvania. We only had a limited satellite feed, and were too busy to watch it. Being at sea and heading toward the problem gave us a sense of purpose. We felt empowered."
